The President's Message 
To The Class Of 1967 



"I have no safe depository of the ultimate powers of society 
but the people themselves; and if we think them not en- 
lightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome 
discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to 
inform their discretion by education." 

. . . Thomas Jefferson 



Our founding fathers saw universal education as a keystone of our democracy. 
A century later, our government, seeing higher education as a basis for our econ- 
omy, authorized the establishment of the land grant colleges for agriculture and 
engineering. 

Rock Valley College, a community college, is a part of America's great edu- 
cational heritage, bringing to the district residents of all ages, opportunities for 
education in the arts, sciences, agriculture, engineering, and a number of other 
vocations. Its door is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. to all who can profit from 
higher education. 

Rock Valley College senses community needs and contributes to personal and 
community growth. Growth is the theme of this publication, the first yearbook 
of a graduating class at Rock Valley. 

In a brief two years. Rock Valley College has been translated from a dream 
of dedicated community planners to a reality with a locally-elected board of con- 
trol, a faculty, a student body, a campus, and a complete range of community 
services. 

As we look forward, the present rate of growth will continue as campus, 
faculty, and student body expand to meet local demand for higher education. Our 
first permanent buildings will be ready in 1968. Construction will continue for a 
number of years until Rock Valley College will have facilities equal to the best. 

The charter class of 1967 has made a significant contribution to this growth. 
They have shared in the pioneering work of breaking ground in all aspects of 
institutional life. 

To you, the class of 1967, I wish to convey sincere thanks for the inspiration 
you have given to board, administration, faculty, and community. We wish you 
all success in your future endeavors. We shall cherish your support of Rock Valley 
In its continuing growth and development. You have helped your Alma Mater make 
a sound beginning. We pledge to keep your high standards before us in order that 
we shall fulfill the dreams of those who have gone before and provide a bright 
future for those who will succeed all of us.

Rapid Growth Flourishes at Rock Valley — 



PLANS ARE rapidly taking shape for the 
permanent campus at Rock Valley College. 

An architectural firm, The Associated Architects 
for Rock Valley, has been planning and designing 
the college's stylish, new home. The association 
is made up of three firms: C. Edward Ware and 
Associates of Rockford; Ernest J. Kump and Asso- 
ciates of Palo Alto, California; and Durrant, Dein- 
inger, Dommer, Kramer and Gordon of Dubuque, 
Iowa. It is hoped that some of the permanent 



buildings will be ready for occupancy by the fall 
of 1968. 

The buildings will be in keeping with the rustic, 
natural-looking landscape here but will still be 
permanent structures. 

This accelerated construction project is a further 
example that our school is not standing still but, 
instead, making progress toward more and better 
educational facilities.

Congressman Anderson Exhibits 
Continuing Interest in RVC 





THE HON. JOHN B. ANDERSON, 16th Congres- 
sional District Representative from Rockford, spoke 
for the second time at Rock Valley College in late 
February. The talk was sponsored by the Social 
Science Club. Anderson was present earlier in the 
school year at Rock Valley for the flag raising 
ceremony. 

Anderson discussed in full the present draft 
system. He was on the side of those who voiced 
anger at being drafted because they did not agree 
with the present system. However, he was against 
those who burned their draft cards and refused 
to serve in the war altogether. Following the 
speech, Anderson encouraged students to ask 
questions.

A Letter From the Editor 



THIS HAS BEEN a year of change for our college. The school is now situated 
on a new campus; the faculty and student body have more than doubled in size; 
courses and curricula are more diverse than they were during the college's first 
year of operation. 

The yearbook too has changed to a great degree. It boasts a new name, and 
a different cover in appearance and in composition. It is also divided into sections 
using a new format and it contains more pages, more copy, and, most important, 
more photographs of students and faculty. 

All of these innovations and modifications of last year's initial RVC yearbook 
are designed to demonstrate that the annual is one representation of college life 
that also ought to be revamped from year to year to conform with the ever-chang- 
ing face of the school. 

THE SPIRIT OF '67 has endeavored to capture the school's growth and rapid 
advancement on all educational fronts. The photographs and articles in this year- 
book are intended to reflect those many memorable moments that took place during 
the year. We, if I may speak on behalf of the entire staff, hope that this material 
will serve as a vivid pictorial record of this year for those associated with RVC 
today and those who will follow us on this campus in years to come 

The title of the annual will continue to undergo some revision as time goes 
on. The name of the book will be changed to correspond with the year in which 
the book is published. However, it will always retain the SPIRIT theme in an attempt 
to maintain the rustic, frontier character of the college as a whole. 

Let me close by taking this occasion to welcome you to a picture book that 
we very much hope will offer you many hours of pleasant recollections as you look 
through the Rock Valley College yearbook, "THE SPIRIT OF '67." 

HENRY T. KOERNER 
Editor-in-chief

NOT ONLY has the number of students kept growing at R.V.C. but also the 
faculty has increased in numbers and in calibre since the college first opened its 
doors two years ago. 

An addition of many new, widely-experienced but basically youthful instruc- 
tors at the beginning of the 1966-67 school year has swelled the faculty ranks 
to about 75 members, a figure that is more than double the total of teachers during 
1965-66. With the enrollment expected to increase still more in each ensuing 
year. Rock Valley students can look forward to the presence of even more well- 
qualified instructors on campus in the near future. 

And as the curricular programs become more diverse and the teaching staff 
progresses in quality, the students will reap the benefits in being able to obtain 
a better general and vocational-technical education.

Students Prosper from Stimulating Climate 



A GOODLY number of our more than 2,000 students who were enrolled at 
RVC this year have taken a giant step closer to achieving their aspirations for 
higher education. Those who did indeed draw nearer to this goal were undoubtedly 
helped considerably by the intellectual climate of instruction to which they were 
exposed at Rock Valley. 

These are the real "students" of the school, the ones who have a legitimate 
(and, in fact, an honorable) purpose for being here. And these are the very peo- 
ple, of course, who profit most from the healthy exchange of traditional values 
and untested ideas that characterizes most of our student-centered classes. 

Someday soon these students will be on the threshold of graduation. At that 
time many will think back retrospectively to their previous educational experiences 
here. Most will probably conclude that two fundamental ingredients that allowed 
them to realize their academic ambitions were the rapport fostered by their teach- 
ers and the freedom within the more intellectually rewarding classes to discuss, 
to question, and to criticize theories and concepts. 

This college is dedicated to "educating" its citizens, in the fullest sense of 
the word, whether the individual is seeking an Associate of Arts degree, or an 
Associate of Science degree, and without regard for his plans, no matter if he in- 
tends to go to work after graduation, or contemplates further education.

Folk Singers Voice Talents 




MARGARET EBERLE, well known in Chicagoland folk singing circles, performs a 
wistful, melancholy number at the Folk Fest. 



STEVE NELSON entertains the "Festive" audience with a haunting folk melody. 



ONE of the first major events 
on the school's crowded social 
calendar, the "Folk Fest" attracted 
a sizeable number of outstanding 
individual performers and tal- 
ented groups of folk singers. The 
songsters came from as far as 
Chicago suburbs as well as from 
the Rockford area and the two 
local colleges. The folk concert, 
which was sponsored by The 
Valley Forge college newspaper, 
heralded the birth of a lively and 
many-sided entertainment pro- 
gram at RVC. The festival cer- 
tainly promises to become an 
annual entry in the college's ex- 
panding series of social affairs.

Dances Highlight RVC Social Events 




AT ONE of the dances in the Student Center, Debbie Kinart and her date pick up the beat. 



THROUGHOUT the year, Rock Valley had many 
dances. In the fall the Student Commission planned 
and carried out an Orientation AAixer with music pro- 
vided by "The Valiants" and all students of RVC wel- 
comed. 

The Athletic Department sponsored an after game 
dance with the "Cavemen." 

The Policeman's Ball, a dance under the direction 
of Traffic Control and Security social board, was 
another addition to the social calendar.

Souls' Trio at the Policeman's Bait in January. 




Unnoticed Cottage Is Musical Retreat 




A VERY useful, but seldom 
noticed feature of the Rock 
Valley College grounds is that 
little cottage by the pond. This 
tiny wooden structure, which 
resembles a log cabin, serves 
as a meeting place and storage 
room for our band and a prac- 
tice room for the choir on 
Wednesday nights. The one- 
room cottage fits nicely into the 
rustic atmosphere of the school.

Traveling Bookstore Settles Down at RVC. 




YOU don't see wheels on our temporary book- 
store any longer, but the store once was a "trailer on 
wheel" The trailer rolled onto the RVC homestead 
last summer from Michigan. Once the trailer was in 
place the wheels were removed and the store opened 
for business along side of the barn. It will be moved 



after a new bookstore is established on the per- 
manent campus. The store furnishes students with a 
vast array of material from sweatshirts to books and 
papers. Supplies may be purchased Monday through 
Friday from Mrs. Avery Thompson and Mrs. Eugene 
Lundeen.

Roughing It At the Student Center 



A HAND of cards is an ultra typical 
means of passing free time in the 
Student Center. Here Tom Williams 
demonstrates. 




WHILE there is usually and bustle aplenty in the Student Center, students wishing to study find the 
library always provides a welcome retreat.

THE HUB of campus social life, 
the building which houses the Stu- 
dent Center, used to be a dairy barn. 
In some respects it still looks like one. 
Its agrarian characteristics have re- 
mained largely intact by officials of 
the college. 

Yet for several evenings during 
the fall this mecca of card players, 
conversationalists and casanovas was 
transformed into an eighteenth cen- 
tury English coffeehouse. The center 
was refurbished for the school's first 
series of satirical skits. The produc- 
tion, which ran for several perfor- 
mances during a three-week span, 
was a British blackout revue called 
"Sweet, Sour and Sassy." It was pre- 
sented by Rocky Valley College 
Theater under the direction of Mr. 
Donald Colucci. 

Comely "milkmaids" served cof- 
fee and other beverages including 
apple cider. Animal-shaped hors d' 
oeuvres further augmented the menu. 

All in all, the satirical revue of- 
fered a refreshing change of pace 
that was nonetheless very much in 
keeping with RVC's endeavor to pre- 
serve the atmosphere of old, bygone 
eras.

Steve Fitzgerald in Blackouts routine.

HELPING a student to establish his goals is one of the many duties of Miss Elizabeth Harvey 
and her fellow counselors. Here she is pictured as she helps Joe Borsche with his scholastic 
program. 



STUDENTS with aca- 
demic, financial or personal 
problems frequently turn to 
the RVC guidance staff for 
help. Four counselors work 
by appointment. By holding 
counseling sessions each ad- 
visor supervises a special 
program designed to encour- 
age students to grow in re- 
sponsibility and social inter- 
action. Mr. Edward Closson 
devotes his days to assisting 
each advisee toward self- 
understanding and maturity. 
Mr. Richard Dresser is in 
charge of the college's work- 
study and placement pro- 
grams and acts as director of 
the SC. Mr. Robert Berg min- 
isters to the counseling needs 
of evening division students. 
Miss Elizabeth Harvey is 
chairman of the scholarship 
and federal grants commit- 
tees. 



Counseling Team Steers Students 
Toward Continued Enrollment 



ALWAYS willing to lend a helping hand and some words of advice, a member of the faculty, 
Mr. David Arnold, explains to two students how to solve their English scheduling problems at 
regular registration. 



DESPITE a dip in en- 
rollment for the winter quar- 
ter, each registration period 
resembled a mob scene of 
epic proportions. RVCites 
dashed about helter skelter 
having tentative programs 
approved, collecting class 
cards, and paying fees. In 
some cases conferences with 
counselors and registration 
officials were required for 
students bewildered or dis- 
traught about courses on 
their schedules that had been 
closed. Advance and regular 
registrations were held be- 
fore the beginning of each 
new term.

WHEN any school grows toward maturity, cultural events offered by the institution tend to register this 
progress. RVC's development as a sophisticated, urbane college was mirrored for all to see by its presentation 
of Menotti's "Amahl and the Night Visitors." The contemporary one-act opera, which was brought to the 
Rockford Theater stage on December 1 1, was College's first venture into an operatic production for the whole 
metropolitan community. Leading roles were taken by Jeffrey Johnson, who portrayed Amahl; Mrs. Cleo 
Spading (Amahi's mother); and John Joern, Stephen Nelson, and David Fulton (the three Magi)

dance. 



A GROWING college, 
one In which all extra-cur- 
ricular facets of campus life 
are really thriving, never 
closes its doors. RVC took a 
giant step in this favorable 
direction when the Student 
Commission sponsored the 
first Winter dance ever held 
when classes were not in ses- 
sion. The semi-formal affair, 
which took place during 
Christmas vacation, was 
called "Winter Enchantment." 
It featured the coronation of 
a freshman prince and prin- 
cess, a visit from Old St. 
Nick, and the music of Mike 
Alongi's orchestra.

College Helps Students 

Work Their Way Through School 




FILING all kinds of library material occupies the time ancJ attention of Bob 
Shultz when the RVC student-worker is not in class. 



BANK balances of many RVC students 
showed a marked improvement during the 
past year, thanks in large measure to the 
school's Work-Study program. Part-time em- 
ployment both on and off campus enabled 
busy RVCites to color over the unnerving red 
in their bank book with a soothing coat of 
black. 

Three employment programs sponsored 
by the college afford students job oppor- 
tunities ranging from clerical work to toil with 
the building and grounds maintenance crew. 
Other college workers manned positions as 
assistants in the library, food service, traffic 
control and security, classrooms and labora- 
tories, tutorial program, athletic and recrea- 
tional departments, and computer program- 
ming. 

Mr. Richard Dresser directs the student 
placement bureau which provides campus 
jobs as well as employment with local busi- 
nesses and industries.

RVC Unveiled 
for 12,000 






WHEN something brand new grows out of old ground utilized 
for much different purposes previously, the place becomes invested with 
a rustic frontier atmosphere. Such was the case as RVC arose out of farm- 
lands sold to the college by Dr. Maurice Rogers. A rugged pioneering 
feeling filled the college's new permanent quarters. 

Apparently this spirit was contagious. It spread into surrounding 
towns and stirred over 2,000 curious souls to pay a visit to the RVC campus 
on Sunday, November 20, for the school's first Open House. Families by 
the thousands saw abundant evidence of our growth. They toured the 
interim facilities; chatted with board members; administrators and teachers; 
examined modern scientific equipment in the labs and up-to-date audio- 
visual paraphernalia; and viewed architectural drawings and scale models 
of buildings to be erected on the permanent campus. In general, the guests 
came away from their afternoon at RVC a formly convinced that "progress" 
is uppermost in our minds. 

Flag Ceremony Raises 
Patriotic Symbol. 

ANOTHER sign of the growing of RVC's spirit, a flag dedication cere- 
mony, took place in November. Old Glory now waves over the campus to 
remind us of our nation's patriotic heritage and our own college's pioneer- 
ing spirit. Dr. John Queenan presided over the ceremony, which marked 
the first time a flag was raised on our permanent grounds, and introduced 
The Honorable John B. Anderson, Congressman from Illinois; Board Presi- 
dent Robert Sechler; and President Clifford Erickson. A large contingent of 
marchers and guests at the speaker's stand participated in the program.

cheers and a victory dance by our mascot, a bonfire 
on campus started our basketball season. Leaders of 
the Pep Club spearheaded boosted the morale of the 
students. The officers are Nancy Johnson, president; 
Kathy Love, vice president; Jean Dmulhow^ski, treas- 
urer; Joanne Justice, secretary; and Marg Ostic, social 
chairman.

Spirit Sextet Sparks Team and Fans 




RVC CHEERLEADING squad includes (front row from left) Barb Gunn, Lil Rinaldo, Shirley Holliday; (back row from left) Maria 
Quevedo, Jane Edwards, and Cherry Grimmitt. 



THE SEEMINGLY tireless cheerleaders of Rock Valley College helped to bolster 
the school's spirit through the year, as well as at all athletic events. This year's 
cheerleading squad was the first ever at RVC. They were elected by the faculty, 
administration, and students. 

The six girls chosen were Jane Edwards, freshman; Barb Gunn, freshman; 
Maria Quevedo, freshman; Lil Rinaldo, freshman; Shirley Holliday, sophomore; and 
Cherry Grimmitt, sophomore. 

During tryouts, the girls did a cheer, "Freshmen, will ya fight?" Individually, 
each girl did a "V" jump, and a cheer of her choice. 

The perky demeanor of this bouncy group of cheerleaders was largely re- 
sponsible for nurturing a feeling of vitality within students too. Through their 
example of pep and enthusiasm they made us proud of our athletes and their 
achievements.

THE FIRST YEAR golf squad, under the fine coaching of Norm Matzl, wound 
up with a highly successful season. 

The "swinging" team posted a 7-2 overall record and climaxed the year by 
placing third in the Northern Illinois Junior College Conference Meet, finishing 
behind Wright and Lyons. 

Comprising the team were Larry Anderson, Jim Frederickson, Lloyd McWil- 
liams, Ray Ryan, Bob Shultz, and Mike Tierney. 

Nine teams provided the opposition for the Trojans in the NIJCC. They were 
Wright, Lyons, Moiine, Thornton, Joliet, Amundsen, Elgin, Morton, and Bloom.

Cagers Go 6-6 in League Debut 



THE ROCK VALLEY basketball squad had a 
highly successful season under Head Coach Chuck 
Behrends, winning 14 of 23 games. 

Competing in the Northern Illinois Junior Col- 
lege Conference for the first time, the Trojans 
provided many exciting moments for both the 
college and the community. RVC was 6-6 in the 
NIJCC. 

Rock Valley won all but two of its home 
games, losing only to Joliet by one point and to 
a powerful Wilson team. 

At one stretch the Maroon and Gold posted six 
straight victories at home. 

RVC opened the season in a convincing manner, 
routing Sauk Valley, 97-53. 

Probably the most exciting win of the year was 
the 93-91 decision over Crane of Chicago on 



January 16. 

Right behind that one in the thrills and chills 
department would be the season's finale, in which 
the RVC cagers beat the Illinois State Freshman 
team, 80-68 at Normal. 

The Trojans also gained revenge from Free- 
port Community College late in the season when 
our squad beat the Cougars, 82-70. RVC had 
lost earlier to Freeport, 85-82. 

Ed Hearyman topped the squad in scoring, 
averaging 17.2 points per game. Sanford Thomp- 
son scored 15.7, and Rich Jacky ended up with 
a 14.1 average. 

The basketball future looks very bright at 
Rock Valley after the fine performance put on by 
our tough Trojans during the 1966-67 season. 




TWO MORE points are racked up by Sanford Thompson for 
Rock Valley.

AS ONE of the biggest improvements in the total sports program, an intra- 
mural football program was inaugurated on October 16. Nearly 80 men participated 
in the gridiron activities. There were a total of eight teams, divided into two leagues, 
the Maroon and the Gold. 

Both leagues played four weeks with a champion in each league. The "Lobos" 
represented the Gold League, and the "Independents" represented the Maroon. The 
fifth week the two teams met, and the "Independents" were victorious. 

The leagues were sponsored by the RVC sports staff and the Student Com- 
mission. Ray Hughes and Bob Montgomery served as student directors for the 
program.

PE Classes Offer Great Variety of Sports 




THE PHYSICAL Education Department at Rock 
Valley offered a wide variety of sports activities 
for both men and women. 

Swimming, volleyball, and badminton were 
offered to students during the fall quarter. The 
winter quarter had basketball, swimming, and 
bowling as PE courses. Four activity courses were 
offered in the spring. They were golf, swimming, 
tennis, and softball. 

For the first time, theory courses were given 
at RVC as part of a greatly expanded curriculum 
in physical education. Classes ranged from Recre- 
ational Leadership to Coaching of Football and 
Basketball.

Student Commission Sets Policies 
for Student Body 

SC REPRESENTATIVES are (front row from left) Luann Signer!, Pat Mclnn is, Cathy Pickering, Linda Dobbs, Lynn Schoepski, Paul Colombi, 
Denver Bitner, Janet Pierce and Jan Fishe; (Middle row from left) Dr. J, B. Munson and Joe Borsche; (back row from left) Tom Luchetti, 
Jim Hall Bill Hoyt, Gerry Menne, Bob Montgomery, Steve Stiles, Mike Aukes, Bruce Espy and Bill Thurmond. Absent are Mary Ann Peters, 
Kathy Flood, Chuck Lamb, and Steve Mutimer. 




BY FAR the most important organization of campus is the Rock Valley College Student Com- 
mission, which was established in August of 1965. 

The Commission was set up to: Cooperate in the development of a student activity program 
for RVC and the creation of a student center; Assume responsibility for traffic control; Represent the 
students on the dean of student's discipline committee, when invited to do so; Charter student or- 
ganizations; Formulate the bases for worthwhile standards of student traditions at the college; 
Cooperate with the office of the dean of students in initiating orientation programs for new students; 
Arrange for the supervision of all students' social activities on campus; Work with the deans in 
preparing for a suitable recognition day at the end of the year as a reward for individuals who have 
earned distinction through good scholarship; and Provide leadership training for officers and 
spokesmen of all student groups. 

Five officers during 1966-67 directed the governing body as the student representatives en- 
deavored to carry out these duties. They were Bill Thurmond, president; Luann Segneri, vice presi- 
dent-treasurer; Linda Dobbs, secretary; Mary Ann Peters, parliamentarian; and AAike Aukes, sergeant 
at-arms. 

In many ways the development of this student government agency has to keep in step with 
the widening scope and the expanding functions of the school in general. By carefully guiding the 
growth toward maturity of the total student population, the Student Commission is in an ideal posi- 
tion to take the lead in creating a well disciplined, unified and constructive force of students who 
will work actively for a better college and a better image for the younger generation.

TSC is briefed on new parking rules by Coordinator Robert Montgomery. The student traffic supervisors (seated from left) Dave Davis Joe

TRAFFIC CONTROL AND SECURITIES was 
created to control movement of traffic and to 
alleviate parking difficulties. The campus police 
unit began its first year of strict traffic enforce- 
ment this fall on the unique setting of the RVC 
campus. 

Although a small segment of the student 
body tended to take an openly critical view of the 
work done by their peers serving on TCS, the 
student police did manage to keep the flow of 
traffic on our campus fairly free of congestion. 
Faculty parking and other reserved spaces have 



been kept open for those who have a definite 
need for them. 

The rustic flavor of RVC has resulted in a 
decrease in the students' attention to proper park- 
ing procedures. By giving tickets to all offenders, 
TCS has placed a premium upon adherence to 
campus traffic and parking regulations. 

Relaxing after hours, the group sponsored 
its first Policemen's Ball. Even during this social 
function they were entrusted with keeping school 
property intact.

RVC Boasts First 
Debate-Forensics Squad 



FORENSICS AND DEBATE were instituted on our campus to 
promote the application of clear thinking and logic to various types of 
public speaking. 

Started as a small group this fall the debate and forensics squads 
hope to grow with the college. The teams are coached by Mr. David 
Arnold (pictured at the right) of the Communications Division. 

The group plans to attend the National Novice Debate Tournament 
and other speaking tournaments scheduled throughout the year.

College Band Explores Breadth 

Of Musical Forms in 

1966-67 Debut 

THE ROCK VALLEY COLLEGE BAND, conducted by Mr. Reuben 
Johnson, was another thriving organization on campus this year. 

The purpose of the rapidly developing orchestral unit was to 
explore various types of music and give public performances of it. 

The band played at a number of Trojan basketball games during 
the year and also presented a concert in conjunction with the choir in 
early January. 

Band officers were Nellie Berg, president; Rick James, vice-presi- 
dent; Nick Pasch, secretary-treasurer; and Kathy Love, librarian.

Choir Captivates Audiences 
With Varied Selections 



THE ROCK VALLEY COLLEGE CHOIR, under 
the direction of AAr. Reuben Johnson, thrilled 
many audiences during its first year of singing on 
behalf of the school and for the community. 

The goals of the organization are to learn 
and perform music from many genres. 

The Music Department joined with the Theatre 
Department to present the one act opera, "Amahl 
and the Night Visitors" in early December at the 
Rockford Theatre. The choir also sang over the 
Christmas holidays on two Rockford television 
stations. 

As still another major production for the 



1966-67 company of singers the chorus per- 
formed in the AAendelesohn Concert Series in 
early January. Two of the selections the choir 
sang were the hymn "God of Our Fathers," and 
the jazz spiritual, "Shadrack," thus illustrating still 
further the diverse talents and musical interests 
of the group. 

The group is planning a Broadway musical 
for this summer. 

Officers for the year were, Gary Lundquist, 
president; David Fulton, vice-president; Mary Ann 
Peters, secretary-treasurer; and Cheryl Hammond, 
librarian.

Future Teachers Prepare For Career 




FUTURE careers are planned by FTA members. They are (first row from left) Vice president John Strohman, Treasurer Jim Rasch, Robert 
Stiles, and Harris Doures; (middle row from left) Recording Secretary Sharon Clark, Corresponding Secretary Karen Euno, Verneen Badertscher, 
Chris Marshall, and President Peggy Timmer; (back row from left) Linda McAllister, Diane Soter, Kay Lee, and Miss Dorothy Butts. Absent 
are Sheila Baldwin, Ardele Cerving, Mary Downing, Jan Fisher, Sheila Garey, John Hunter, Judy Klug, Mary Nelson, Lorna Rhodes, Diana Scott, 
Elizabeth Falk, Colette Clifford, Debby Richardson, and Leslie Reid. 



THE FTA of Rock Valley College began its 
first sessions last fall. Under the guidance of Miss 
Dorothy Butts, it forged an active, progressive 
foundation upon which the FTA of years to come 
can build. The principles adopted this first year 
on the new campus no doubt will serve as a 
guide to future FTA members. 

The FTA members became acquainted with 
the goals of the teaching profession. Through 
guest speakers they learned of opportunities in 
teaching. 



By engaging in practical projects, they per- 
formed community services such as tutoring to 
gain experience for a career in teaching. The 
group contributed to college and community by 
tutoring at Booker T. Washington Center and other 
community free-tutoring centers, holding a 
Mother's Day Tea for RVC students and their 
mothers, and another tea for all FTA senior mem- 
bers from all high schools of Winnebago and 
Boone Counties.

Club Members Study Medical Research 
Serve Community as Volunteer Aides 



THE MERGER between the future nurses and 
all other types of medical clubs brought about the 
Allied Medical Society under the sponsorship of 
Miss Dorothy Butts. 

Future projected growth of this organization 
will result in an increase in participation and 
programs on the Rock Valley campus. 

Through this first year members of the Allied 
Medical Society have become familiar with various 



careers in the medical sciences and the oppor- 
tunities in them. They have gained knowledge 
through medical research and experience through 
voluntary medical assistance in the community. 

Plans for the club include a visit to several 
medical centers in the area, aid to crippled and 
handicapped children and service at homes for 
the aged and senior citizens. 




ALLIED MEDICAL Club looks toward the future. They are (front row from left) Miss Dorothy Butts, Treasurer Patricia Launley, Secretary 
Kathleen Swart, and Cindy Purkafile; (back row from left) Bonnie Tamarack, President Sam Beckett, Chuck Stron, David Loomis, Cindy Meyers,

Phi Theta Kappa Rewards 
Outstanding Scholarship 



MEMBERSHIP in Phi Theta Kappa 
is increasing at a reserved, measured 
rate that is in keeping with the 
scholarly, moderate character of this 
organization. Still, Omicron Eta Chap- 
ter, under the auspices of Miss Eliza- 
beth Harvey, is growing in number 
and in academic achievements just 
as steadily as is the college itself. 

The organization was initiated 
on the RVC campus to promote 
scholarship, to develop character, and 
to cultivate fellowship among the stu- 
dents. 

To qualify as a member of this 
organization a student must have a 
3.2 cumulative average for two con- 
secutive quarters. He must also be a 
full time student for the two' quarters. 

Phi Theta Kappa has plans to 
sponsor a variety of lectures and de- 
bates. They also will continue to 
sponsor the annual student-faculty 
basketball game. 




PHI THETA KAPPA officers are (from left) Nancy Williams, treasurer, Marlin Larson, 
president, and Linda Dobbs, secretary.

Versatile Thespians Range 
From Satire to Children's Musical 



ENTERING its second year of existence, the 
theatre group, led by Mr. David Meisenhoider 
and Mr. Donald Colucci, has planned and brought 
to the stage productions which range fronn a 
series of satirical skits to a play with songs 
written for juvenile audiences. Now on the new 
cannpus the organization is beginning to thrive. 
Most students who have an interest in the 
theatre are starting to take an active part in the 
group's presentations. 

The first production this year was the "Sweet, 



Sour, Sassy" Blackouts revue. The coffeehouse 
which formed the backdrop for this show was 
located in the Student Center, formerly a dairy 
barn. To carry this theme still further milkmaids 
were present to serve cider and hors 'd'-oeuvres. 
The RVC Theatre is currently readying for 
the stage a children's musical entitled "Rover 
Flies Over." It will tour eighteen elementary 
schools in Boon and Winnebago Counties each 
Friday from March through May.

SCIENCE CLUB officers admire project. They are (from left) Kathy Love, secretary; Jim Hall, past-president and founder; Mr. Peter Frisk, math 
instructor and co-sponsor; Jeff Williams, vice president; and Bob Seitz, treasurer. Absent is Fred Garcia, president. 



THE APPLIED Science Club held its first 
meeting on October 10, 1966, and was officially 
recognized as an organization on October 27, 
1966. 

Membership in this club has enabled stu- 
dents to enhance their background and training 
in particular fields of science. 



Participation of all members in diverse re- 
search projects lends a unity to the group that is 
characteristic of the closeness of the RVC students. 

For example, the group at present is build- 
ing a ruby laser. They are also developing plans 
for a campus radio station. This spring the mem- 
bers will attend a science fair in Iowa. 




YOUNG scientists get a word of advice from Mr. Koleto. They are (from left) Sponsor Mr. Brian C. Koleto, Walt Cunny, Jeff Williams, Kathy

Vets Make Most of Social Life on Campus 

DEDICATED to the proposition of having a good tinne, the Veterans Club, a social-minded club created 
for all full time students who have served in our Armed Forces, seemed to enjoy themselves immensely 
throughout the school year. The Vets appeared to relish the folksy, homespun atmosphere on the RVC cam- 
pus, experiencing no difficulty in making themselves at home while many of the rest of the studerrts re- 
garded the temporary facilities as a rather dormant place. 

The group represented the school at public affairs and promoted school activities and events, and ton- 
tinually demonstrated through their projects and conduct that college can be fun in spite of the growing pains 
which the institution is going through. The dances that the club put on were always well received by the 
students. 

Mr. John Van Dyke served as sponsor of the group. Members voted honorary advisorships for Mr. 
Edward Clossen and Mr. David Meisenholder. 



OFFICERS of the club are (seated from left) Steve Mutimer, 
president; Marilee Knapp, secretary; Al Gober, treasurer;

Yearbook Editors 
Compile Annual with 
New Look 

THE SPIRIT OF '67, the Rock Valley yearbook, 
launched its second year of publication with the 
emphasis on the college's growing campus. The 
Spirit tried to link its theme with the rustic fron- 
tier atmosphere of the college this past year. One 
of the prime objectives of next year's annual will 
be to include every student's picture. Advisor Ed- 
ward Stcyanoff has declared. 

Hank Koerner was editor-in-chief of the 1967 
book. Advertising sales manager was Margaret 
Ostic. Editors and their respective divisions were 
Kay Lee, class and faculty editor; Ellen Dahlin, 
activities editor; Stephanie Perla, organizations; 
Mark Hendrickson, sports; and LaVerne Harms, 
photography coordinator. Greg Bramhall served as 
official student photographer. Yearbook artist was 
Jane Egan.

. . . yours for the working. Many Rock Valley College 
students have found they could turn their spare hours 
into dollars by getting part-time work at Barber-Colman 
Company. We often have jobs whose time tables can be 
modified to suit your class schedule. And many of these 
jobs require little or no experience. 

This unusual opportunity exists because Barber-Colman 
is growing. And we're growing fast. The natural supply 
of full-time workers in Rockford can't keep up with us. So— 

If you have a few hours each day that you don't need for 
school work . . . and you would like to turn these hours 
into dollars . . . just give us a call. We have two plants in 
Rockford, and each one has a personnel office for your 
convenience.

THE TROJAN ... THE SPIRIT OF 1967 



150 



The yearbook staff would like to take this opportunity to express its genuine 
gratitude to the people who have made this yearbook possible. It is fitting that we 
first express our appreciation to Mr. Edward M. Stoyanoff, the yearbook advisor, 
for his valuable guidance, patience, and time. His tireless efforts and encouragement 
were an indispensable factor in our yearbook. 

The publication of this yearbook would not have been possible if it was not 
for the understanding of the teachers who were lenient and thoughtful enough to 
excuse the students to work on the yearbook when a deadline was approaching or 
pictures were being taken. 

All in all, the completion of the yearbook was the result of the joint effort of 
the faculty and students.
